Am I the only one that just made a mental note to load gold when I see charcoal in his scorp?

 

Nah, everyone from NFB deserve the very best that in game credits can buy.

I have played for a few years. I dont use gold. refuse to use it. its basically cheating. I have a premium account though to lessen the grind and pay them at least something for the game.

 

where i am going with this is that gold ammo pushs the frustration over my limit. Angling, side scraping etc. They realise they cant pen me so they switch to gold. Whats the point in playing anything but a fast russian medium when armour doesnt count.

 

OP don't post on here about GOLD,  the players on this forum all spam gold. Gold is the tool of those that have more credits than you. WOT is a P2W game, get used to it or move on. But don't post here as the mods will allow people to berate and belittle you. 

 

GL!

I had a guy use gold against me last night in my M56 Scorpion, not just once but four times, that is definitely a player that doesn't understand the game.

 

It happens, I tend to load gold if I think I need to engage a higher tier armoured target, and I also sometimes forget I have gold selected :teethhappy:

Nothing wrong with using Gold. I used it all the time to reduce RNG from screwing me.

I will use gold on you too because I don't need to wait for my aiming circle to close fully.

That's like the 8th article on the subject over 4 years... No ones ever gonna change the system, its an archaic system remade to be more friendly(more free) yet in reality it just made the ammo more accessible.

This is my problem with Gold ammo, why does the same tank have two APCR shells they can fire, one has for example 190mm of penetration and the other has 240mm of penetration.... Its the same gun from the same tank yet the ammo which is exactly the same ammo does different things.. It doesn't make sense.

 

Different propellant can result in different shell velocity, and different composition and design of the penetrator.  Amongst other things these are why you can have two shells of a same basic type that have different penetration characteristics. A better question would have been why the gun/shell on the type four and type 5 Japanese heavy tanks has different damage and penetration than the gun on the FV207 British artillery.   The Japanese gun is a copy of the original british naval gun produced under licence in Japan and fires the same weight HE shell at what would be a lower velocity due to a shorter barrel length.  So realistically should have lower penetration especially when you factor in its fired at a flatter trajectory and more often striking thicker armour than an artillery shell falling from above. Yet is does more damage and has higher penetration in the game. But, it is only a game and artillery is hated and has been ruined

Its kind of like that fellow from a few years ago (when you could chat to the enemy) who nearly always drove a Maus, and yoloed in it, while at the start of every game berating the enemy about how only idiots used gold....

That is not why people shoot gold. You shoot gold for a variety of reasons:

  1. 25% RNG on your penetration 
  2. Tanks that have more armour effective then your standard shell would otherwise pen
  3. Increasing the chance of penning weakspots, i.e. lower plates of Obj. 260, 907, and the Defender that would otherwise be unpennable by standard rounds (think, light tanks)

Saying that people shoot gold because they don't know how to play is such a dumb argument to make. Try shooting gold yourself and see how far that gets you.

 

you just agreed with my points. If you are in front of a super heavy tank and cant hit weak spots then you shouldnt be able to pen the front of the tank.  

 

This is the problem. players expect their guns to always pen from the front. gold takes away any need to pull back or flank or team tactics because evry player can pen every tank by pushing the 2 button. 

 

Theres a whole tactic called side scraping or angling. But it becomes pointless when someone realises that they have engaged a heavy tank from the front so they push 2.

 

Gold is for people without skill.

And still not able to tell me why its not a crutch for really poor players.  

 

"but what if i cnt pen your heavy armoured tank from the front?!" well then you are a bad player and shouldnt be attacking a heavy tank from the front that you shouldnt be able to pen. simple really...

The irony that typically the people with least skill are playing super heavies while those with skill tend to avoid slow tanks.

Ah yes, how about you play some MTs or LTs in this current map meta and let us know if flanking is always a viable option.
